“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Myself, husband and mother visited here on 07/03/13. It was quite late on in the afternoon and quiet. We were shown to a lovely table overlooking the river by a very smart and courteous young man. Nothing was too much trouble, we had two different waiters and both were excellent. When the food arrived it was marvellous! All 3 meals were very generously portioned, beautifully cooked and very we'll presented. All in all we had a lovely meal and made to feel very welcome, we were also very pleased with the bill, VERY reasonable! We will be visiting again and urge all who visit Boscastle to do the same if you enjoy well cooked , flavoursome food and good prices.

“Lovely little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We always lunch here when we visit Boscastle, and usually have the Soup & Sandwich deal which is excellent value. Always a good choice of soup and sandwiches. Nice view and good location on the village.

“Amazing Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We had an amazing Sunday lunch here, everything you could possibly wish for with the choice of four meats - we had a little of all of them with a Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, roast potato, sweet roast potato, cauliflower cheese and loads of veg for some ridiculous price of £7.95, I think. It was delicious. If we lived locally we would visit this place every week, I'm salivating just thinking of it. My mum was a chef and I love her roast dinners but this place knocked the socks off it! Have a walk round the harbour and on the coastal path and then call in - it may be worth booking a table.

“Excellent staff & excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Visited here on the 6th March 2014 & was made to feel very welcome. Shown to our table which was next to a window looking out onto the river. Immaculate furnishings and very clean. Ordered drinks first which arrived very promptly, then ordered our food which again didn't take long. Food was delicious & very hot & very filling. Good prices for the food & drink, I actually expected to pay more than we did. Would go back again if holidaying in Cornwall again, might even consider staying in their accommodation as the prices were very good for that.
